    Angry FEb 23 Clue

    Hmmmmmmmmmm........ Yet another exercise in futility! Yet I got a really bizarre translation using some decoder program that was so hinky I couldn't believe it! LOL The real clue is just as bad, but not as funny as the first one I got!. I don't know who created these clues, the sequences for the maps etc, but they must be from Pluto! The fact the it's over 2 years since we started should be an indication to Ron that these clues just aren't cutting it for the average Joe! Or the above average Joe or even the genius Joe! Team Meaner wants clues that can actually be deciphered & make sense. I know the Plutonian thinks these all make perfect sense, but babe- THIS ISN'T PLUTO!!!

    I though this clue made perfect sense and was very useful.

    If you're referring to the clue that just came out on Facebook 45 minutes ago, it should really be titled Feb 24 Clue, since that's today's date.

    If you decrypted the clue and got what appears to be garbage, it is possible that the clue has been encrypted more than once, using different encryption methods.

    Of course you do. You're another Plutonian!
    Any suggestion for us non-Plutonians?

    Sorry about the date.
    Decrypted it twice.Got the clue.
    That's not the problem- it was obvious it was a double encryption. The problem is that each of the weekly clues have still not indicated a sane way to continue the number sequences for the map. If Ron had not taken pity on us and GIVEN us the current number sequence with the eagle eye clues, how many of us HONESTLY came up with that same sequence?? The alleged 20? Doubtful. We're thinking that was a ploy to keep those Questors still in the hunt thinking THEY were one of the 20 so they'd stay in the hunt. If you remember, before the weekly clues & the eagle eye clues appeared, quite a few Questors were ready to call it a day and stash this hunt with Alchemist Dar.

    This clue makes perfect sense to me, and confirms that the solution I sent this week is correct

    I dont see whats strange about this clue. I do agree however, that without these added clues, I really dont see how anyone would have deduced the method. You would think that somewhere in the story would be the fabled instructions as to how to approach this, and I dont mean the obscure apple=orange anagrammed into thirds, etc methods. SOmething straightforward that one could follow to reach the next level.

    The clue, is a joke !!!

    Almost everyone knows that, and again Ron is just helping that ones that didn't want to understand, he has decided to put all of us at the same position .... and then will released a clue, the only one which is missing ...

    I agree. Unless we've missed a bunch of clues in the book, there is no way someone could have figured this out without the 2012 clues.

    Seems unfair, but hey, the whole purpose is to raise money for breast cancer research.
